WITH flower displays, dog shows, street theatre, family entertainment and much more, the organisers of the Feile na mBláth at The Park Festival in Tralee Town Park are ‘blooming up a storm’ for next week.

This years Festival will take place on Saturday/Sunday, June 15/16 in the town park and thanks to the Kerry County Council Community Support Fund and Kerry Group, the Festival will once again be 100% free.

Chairwoman of Tralee Flower and Garden Club Ann O’Sullivan is delighted with the feedback they have received so far which is up on previous years.

“There is great interest in this years classes with entries stronger than ever and with our new Junior Kids Classes we just hope we will have enough space within the Bloom Room in the Kerry Group Marquee to fit all the entrants.”

The festival will see the return of the traditional elements such as the flower displays, dog shows, street theatre, drum circles, emergency services, recitals & performances, busking, vintage cars, community garden, the food & craft village and of course complemented by the other weekend activities such as the Park Runs and Art in the Park.

The highlights at this year’s Festival will see the return of over 30 re-enactors from Deise Medieval from Waterford who will be camping, working and battling in the Park throughout the two days with more reenactors from Newcastlewest & Tralee.

Tralee Municipal District Manager, Michael Scannell, said the festival had become a key event in the calendar in Tralee.

“This has grown into a wonderful community event which attracts many thousands of people to Tralee and Kerry County Council is delighted to support the Féile,” he said.
